for this was the ronald reagan operation, the ronald reagan campaign and the ongoing echoes of that campaign. they didn't have one organization, but they had a series of organizations to make certain that they played for the long pull. they played for history. and they were in many ways effective in doing that. now we're in the 21st century. and what president obama did during the campaign, he took the most creative thinkers that he could find, people to use the cliche who think out of the box. he married them up, if you will, wedded them, molded them into the information era high technology whiz people who knew how to leverage the information age to his electoral advantage. now that's what they want to do with this organize for action. and frankly, i wouldn't bet against them. this could be very, very effective as he tries to get his agenda going and maintain it. but make no mistake, we are dealing here and the country is dealing with and the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was y

romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas

. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like that too, most of the other good ones, jefferson's first or whatever, they're really about the values that unite the country and then also try to put your moment in the broad long context of american history. why this is important and how we're led forward. without being a policy address, it says we have certain values that mean we have to confront certain problems. if i was working on this speech, which i'm not, i would address this problem of polarization, the deep divisions of our country, how we get passed that, achieve common purposes in this country and the president would benefit even in the partisan debates looking large in this speech. >> these inaugurations, second ones are ability healing, is the president in a healing state of mind. >> the way he first came to national attention was his famous 2004 democratic convention speech, most memorable line not red states of america or blue states but the un
on the east side of the capital. and then four years later, when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. sometimes he is credited for making that change, but that change was in the world for quite awhile. it would have been on the west front with carter, later, had ts turn that different. the view on the east front, compared to the west front was not very good. the east front used to be a parking lot, and then you have homes. parking lot, streets, kind of like a little town. whereas, here on the west side, you can accommodate these immense crowds. and they can see something. >> of course, president obama's first inaugural was attended by over a million people, i believe, gathering on the mall. the expectations is it will be somewhere about half that tomorrow. that is typical of second inauguration's. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because the country is not as excited, they know who you are, they have seen you. my friend, who was also a chief speech writer for bill clinton -- i read something that he had written recently -- and let us begin,
at berkeley, very close to ronald reagan before and during the reagan presidency. reagan made him attorney general but ed meese was forced to resign that office in scandal, back in the era when the words republican and attorney general almost always equalled scandal. president nixon's attorney general having been the first and only attorney general who was convicted of a crime and had to serve time for it. while ed meese was attorney general he became one of the very few and very lucky guys who got to watch a lot of porn and get paid for it. in 1984, reagan pointed the attorney general to head the attorney general's commission on pornography, which meant that for two years, ed meese got to look at gay porn, straight porn, all the porn he could possibly get his hands on, which as attorney general was a lot of porn. and after drowning in porn for two years, and getting paid for it, ed meese issued an almost 2,000 page report that reached this conclusion. although the evidence may be slim, we nevertheless now know enough to conclude that pornography does represent a clear and present damage t
including back in 1985 during the second inauguration of president ronald reagan and also when eisenhower, he took his first of the second oath on a sunday. >> arthel: and reports you probably saw the official swearing in live on fox news, but the real celebration will take place tomorrow when president obama takes his public oath of office in front of hundreds of thousands of well-wishers at the national mall. chief political correspondent carl cameron is live with the preview. right now how is the crowd overall? >> it's getting busy but not as busy as four years ago. president obama made history when he made reelection. he was the first president that had fewer popular votes and fewer votes in the electoral college. this is likely to be more subdued out of deference to the economy and national challenges faced by the u.s.a. and the new president there are metrics to show. four years ago there was about 2 million people that showed up. this time around, experts are predicting somewhere between 600,000 to 800,000 so it could be a third of the crowd four years ago. in addition these are no
inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah, you remember four years ago how exciting it was for the country as he was being sworn in and how much hope there was for hope and change and back then, the approval rating according to gallup was 68% and today, you know, after four years and obviously, it's harder to be a president than a hopeful candidate, it's at 48%. >> steve: you know what's interesting, about two or three weeks ago at the conclusion of december, the gallup poll number was, don't tell me, was 58%, so, closer to 60. what's happened in the last couple of weeks? well, you know, he did win that fiscal cliff thing and jacked up taxes on the most successful people in the country a campaign promise and experts say it looks as if his push to reining in gun vio
, almost to the day, when ronald reagan made a statement in his inaugural address that the solution to the government -- the government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem. if you believe that, do not the president, for heaven's sake. you had a president who was inveighing against government. presidents of both parties have basically continued this policy. we have no active programs to solve any of these problems. we know what the solutions are -- we're not going to pay for any of them. i'm telling you, sadly, it is getting worse. no matter what the agreement is in two months. we are squeezing -- the rich have gotten their way. the corporate sector has gotten their way. they do not pay. there is no money for this preschool. all the sectors alone and -- own and operate the congress, so we have overpriced systems, exactly what you say, schools that do not work. we have the least social mobility of any high-income country in the world now. we havewe have kids locked into poverty like no other high- income countries in the whole world. because you cannot get o
was held on the west front of the capitol because since ronald reagan was president because he was a man of the west he wanted to face to the west as president. and he picked that side. now the problem with this is that the joint committee on the inauguration picked that site in june of 1980 and ronald reagan was nominated by his party until july 1980. the platform was under construction by the time the election was held in november. if jimmy carter had been re- elected he would have been sworn in on the west front. ronald reagan was smart enough to realize that he could take possession of this even though he did not order of this or choose this, he put it into his inaugural address. i am the first president to be looking west. i am looking out towards the pacific. he took ownership of that move from the east front to the west front even though he was not the person to choose it. this is an important lesson. ever since george washington came to the capitol, congress has run the inaugurations. that part has been done by the congress. they start a year in advance, long before they know who
inauguration of ronald reagan and when eisenhower in 1957 was taking his second oath. >>gregg: as president obama prepares to kickoff the second concern there is growing concern over the administration's recently outlined plan to rewrite the nation's gun laws. beginning with a campaign style tour to drum up support. doug, is the president's campaign-like approach to all of this a response to the tough partisan realities on capitol hill? >> that is a good statement. for example, republican senator rand paul has vowed to introduce legislation to nullify the president's 23 executive actions he signed last week. he says the founders did not want the president to become a king. senator feinstein's plan to introduce a new assault weapons and extended magazine ban is facing daunting obstacles. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states where the president received fewer than 42 percent of the votes. >> leader harry reid will make guns one of the earliest things we consider. chairman leahy has talked about he

the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's where the american people are. they lost an election. two. >> five out of the last six. and the president will try to, you know, tie everyone together today. one speech can't do that. but what does he need to do, in your view? >> in the speech, i think he needs to appeal to our better angels. raise -- don't just tell me about the policy statements. save that for the state of the union. inspire america today. and i hope that's what he will try to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st ce
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
terms. you look back at someone like ronald reagan or look at franklin roosevelt, you have much more kind of explicit ideological statements about government and what it is. actually the speech that it reminded me -- the most of was woodrow wilson inauguration in 1913. we are celebrating that anniversary as well, the 100th anniversary. in part because the issues are similar, climbed change now, environmental issues and taxation in banking. but the idea that people can't do certain things on their own and we need to come together. >> david? >> let me defend myself. let me attack richard. margaret thatcher gets a bad rap for that. that was -- >> that was -- >> i've always thought she got a bad rap. of who is paying tax bills that speech was first on liberalism i do think it was the most unapologetically liberal speech we've heard barack obama give. it was tracing american history saying that he faced to our ideals we have to change and we have to change in a collective direction. we have to guarantee equal income for women for the same work, he mentioned gay rights, mentioned clima
